DIY cold proofing

Not the finest job but was ok for the 15 minutes I had! Some loft insulation cut to size and held in place using the heavy duty velcro pads has reduced the cold breeze onto my feet by about 85% so pleased with the results!

:joy::joy::joy: What is that thing?!
Check this out - I bought it a few weeks ago, fits in place perfectly. A bit pricey, but super clean and it does the job.

Thanks will take a look as well

How does it fix to the car?

There’s a cutout that you can “open” the hole to fit around the steering shaft. Fastens back together just by squeezing it back together. It’s cut to fit exactly against that back wall, blocking all air flow. I’m quite happy with it. Also with its color, it disappears, you never notice it. It also doesn’t affect pressing the gas or brake.

Inspired by the topic and very cold feet I looked around in the garage and found some foamy material. Made first a carpet (like the one sold on ebay, But i thought that it was not good enough so I glued together a little box and fitted it in a better angle and to the thinner part of the steering column.
